Suicide Soldiers: The Grim Math of How We Got Here

by Reverend Manny and the Twilight Empire

The last months of 2010 were a grim reminder of our nation’s long history of failing its veterans when statisticians noted a sudden increase in the already high numbers of World War II veterans who committed suicide. They capped off a year that saw four […]

Bankster Privilege and the Threat of Right Wing Terrorism in 2011-2012

by Reverend Manny and the Twilight Empire

“We could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time.” — Tea Party “Revolutionary” Rep. Steve King […]

Bush’s Tragic Legacy at Home and Around the World

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

One hopes that thinking about Iraq has gotten clearer since Bush violated U.S. laws and international commitments in order to: 1) seize the oil fields of Iraq; 2) exploit the ‘threat of terror’ to consolidate his ‘base’ at home, 3) subvert Constitutional guarantees that give Americans the […]

The ‘Bailouts’ were Frauds and Shakedowns

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The wrong people got the bailouts. One can find daily confirmation of that. Most recently, according to the L.A.

Indict and Try George W. Bush et al for High Treason and Mass Murder

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy I cannot name an instance in which an innocent person has tried to cover up a crime. And, if he/she did so, why? What’s the point? Conversely, I can think of few if any guilty persons who have not tried, in one way or the other, to […]

Tea Party Candidates — More Proof that they are running cover for the Corporate Agenda

By Reverend Manny (and the Twilight Empire)

When I think of ultimate horrible business hustles, it’s a long list, but near the top are sweatshops, mercenaries, commodity profiteering and environmental assault.

Enter the Tea Party.

It’s awfully hard to get people to mobilize against their own interests. So corporations have to sponsor folks […]

How the War Depresses the U.S. Economy

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The cost of Bush’s war on Iraq, left to Obama to ‘finish’ and clean up, passed the one trillion dollar mark some time ago but has yet to support or prove the old lie that ‘wars are good for the economy’. Where is the evidence that the […]

Conspiracies of Rich Men to Commit War Crimes and Aggression

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy The establishment derides conspiracies and, for awhile, it was fashionable to deny the existence of ‘conspiracies’. In fact, conspiracies are how things get done. Very little is accomplished by one person working alone. If what is to be accomplished is illegal, the ‘conspiracy’ is called a […]

Why Five Members Of SCOTUS Are Nuttier Than Fruit Cakes !!

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

In the worst decision since Bush v Gore, the US Supreme Court has worked a ‘miracle’. Five ‘justices’ –John G. Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Antony Kennedy –have conspired to turn mere words on paper into living, breathing ‘human beings’ and have decreed that […]
